Breakfast Cookies

Yes, these cookies make an acceptable, wholesome breakfast! You’ll notice that there is zero sugar added to these cookies – the sweetness comes from banana and applesauce.

Feel free to add a large scoop of vanilla protein powder to the dough, to increase the protein content of each cookie. While it does take some time to make a batch of these breakfast cookies, you’ll have instant breakfasts for days to come afterwards.
